Yesterday the city of Siena held a traditional horse race around this square; it's a competition between the various sections of the city. Today the winners were celebrating, wearing their section's colors around town.


This is the famous "Il Palio," right? There is a restaurant in New York City called Il Palio, and the walls bear a mural depicting the race.

Btw, today's Doonesbury is about bloggers. I tried to send you the link but in case I garbaged it, you may want to try to find it online.

That's right. The name was slipping my mind for some reason when I was writing the post. I blame the antihystemines.

In case anyone else is curious, the Doonesbury strip is here.
